Okay, gather around and hear the song of my people. The two top reviews for this are a 5 and a 6? What in this show is a 5 or 6? Not a single damn thing.

"Musical Bitches Symphogear", as it's named on my PC, was one of my most complex human-anime relationships. On one hand, it was helmed by the man who brought me Wild Arms, my favorite RPG series of all time, and some of the people behind Oban Star Racers, one of my all time favorite pieces of animation. On the other hand, it was a hastily-made, awkward and janky show that had read more

Fans of the original Symphogear show likely have come to the conclusion that Symphogear is a fun, but extremely mediocre show that can’t be taken seriously. While it had great music and moments of heart pounding action, it also had some quality issues from a low budget, a string of horrendous writing, and poor character development, all coined together in what looked like haphazard direction.

Fortunately, Symphogear G fixes these problems while maintaining the original feeling of bravado from the first season, and it can even be considered, dare say, a great show.

The increase in production and quality can be seen from the very first read more

If you've watched the first season of Symphogear then you have a good idea of what to expect from this series; poorly developed characters, a completely bonkers plot, bad drama, bizarre plot twists and general all round silliness. However whilst that may be the case, this series is superior to its predecessor in several key areas, making it a significantly more enjoyable watch. In fact, whilst this series still suffers from the multitude of flaws and failures of the first season, there is the possibility that you may even enjoy it.

The visuals are far more consistent than they were before, there will be no scenes read more

When people usually think of idols, the first thing they might come up in their mind is someone who is talented, skilled, and viewed as a symbol of icon. Well, this usually applies to superstars in the music industry. In fact, people who become famous in the real world are often idols that others worship and follow as a legion. However, the concept doesn’t just stop there, not in Symphogear G at least. The superstars in Symphogear G aren’t just armed with talent but also with super powers as they take the fight against a mysterious force that threatens to wipe out their existence.

Girls, transforms, colorful graphics...
In both shows, magical girls from rival groups battle each other. Both anime also contain sci-fi elements. (Keep in mind they're both second seasons to their respective series)
Symphogear g is definitely similar to Vivired opeation. Both series:
-use techology based /mecha- abilities in order to fight evil.
-the power of friendship goes without saying as well as the transformation sequences.
All these result into epic fighting sequences. Make sure to give it try.
Symphogear G is very similar to Mai Otome as both series have girls using the power of technology in order to fight evil. In Symphogear G the power comes from signing and old artifacts while in Mai Otome from a special substance that is injected in your body on the condition that you are a woman.
Either way both anime are bassed on the mecha/technology elements in order to acquire power and fight.
Symphogear G is very similar to all the Nanoha series as both share these main elements:
-Girls fighting with mecha-like gear and weapons.
In Nanoha the mecha element is linked to Magic while in Symphogear its linked to singing and old artifacts. Either way the result is the same badass girls fighting epic battles with technology/ mecha super abilities.
both have the idea of friendship between women
both involve fighting with song activated weapons, and this idea of music connecting people (and other stuff)
both are train wrecks that turn out to be interesting
